The Toledo Symphony - Celebrating 65 years of incomparable live musical performance. For the 65th consecutive season, the Toledo Symphony will bring music to the regions of Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan. In 2008-2009 it will continue its mission of service and quality and present over 400 performances to nearly 500,000 music listeners. Performances take place in classrooms, concert halls, churches, auditoriums, senior centers, and theatres in nearly 100 communities in Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana. In its commitment to provide excellent music to the largest possible audience, the Toledo Symphony remains an essential force in the quality of life throughout the region. Formed in 1943 as The Friends of Music and incorporated in 1951 as the Toledo Orchestra Association, Inc., the Toledo Symphony has grown from a core group of twenty-two part-time musicians to a regional orchestra that employs eighty professional musicians who consider the Toledo Symphony their primary employer and Toledo their home. The Ohio Arts Council helped fund the Toledo Symphony with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans.
